have been building jobs those first two years instead of passing the obama care act. with regard to even the stimulus the way he structured that, obviously we have issues with the structure. but if you look at where that money was invested and not going into needed infrastructure projects that he's talking about now. $1 trillion was spent in that and if infrastructure he cease as a problem he could have invested more at that point. if you look across the board it's a matter of priorities and he didn't make a priority of changing the tone in washington or creating jobs at that point when he really could. and that's something that we need to work to move on into the future. host: our last call for chairman of the republican party in mecklenburg north carolina. caller: i want to say that i'm for romney this year. i gave obama a chance four years, and it's gotten worse. i'm not racist. this hasn't got anything to do with parties or race. it's got something to do with country. host: you voted for the president from 2008 you're not in 2012, what is the difference in then and now? calle

. >>> as you saw here earlier this hour president obama's in ohio right now. not only touting the new jobs report that came out today, but also accusing mitt romney of trying to scare people with a very controversial campaign ad. chief white house correspondent jessica yellin reports. >> reporter: in ohio the president saw the bright side of the new jobs numbers. >> this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. the american auto industry is back on top. >> reporter: notice that pivot? the president turned quickly from jobs numbers to the auto industry. >> we've been seeing this out of governor romney and his friends over the last few weeks. >> reporter: no mention of government job losses or an unemployment rate uptick to 7.9%, but lots of time on a fight over the auto bailout and an ad from the romney campaign. >> and you can't try to scare people. this is not a game. these are people's jobs. these are people's lives. >> reporter: he's talking about this. >> obama took gm into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italian who is
7.8% to 7.9%, total nonfarm payroll increased by 171,000 jobs in october. for president obama, the glass is half full. >> today, our businesses have created nearly 5.5 new jobs. this morning, we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> yes, progress under president obama has been slow and sometimes frustratingly so but it has been steady. there has been progress. still, for mitt romney, the glass is half empty. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learned that it is actually 7.9% and that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> if you haven't heard by now, and i can't imagine how you haven't heard by now, in regards to what mitt romney says he is going to actually do, he has got a five-point plan for you. >> people across the country are responding to our five-part plan to create jobs. part one, as you know, is about taking full advantage of our energy resources. second, i'm going to move to boost
is helping obama. >> bob: i think that is a little bit unfair. obama has done a good job -- chris christie was full praise for president obama last night. romney did the right thing. romney campaign agreed to not attack the president in the next couple of days, which is very smart politics, if you will, but it's the right thing to do. >> kimberly: he's a gentleman. >> bob: and they both called off the campaign events which is the right thing to do in the effected areas. so far, the politics, i say obviously it benefits to the president. but romney has inserted himself -- >> eric: can i interrupt? this is absolutely going to benefit mitt romney, because romney was on, he was getting the momentum. he had the gallup poll increasing in his favor and still is. what this did, what the storm did is put evening on hold. froze everything in place. he gets the bigger momentum. importantly, the female vote. the women vote was going, he closed that gap completely. now there is a freeze. bam become can't go -- obama can't go negative and romney can't go negative. if president obama starts showing up at
would be more so by president obama even with his jobs bill out there in congress that we do not hear about too much. i think that could have put this nation further ahead even looking at corporations holding funds where employees could be working right now. i do not know if it is for the ownership of these corporations to determine -- host: thank you for your comment this morning. gov. christie also spoke yesterday from new jersey. >> the challenge now is to get back to normalcy. we need to be sure to get power restored as quickly as possible. hospitals are taken care of and we get kids back to school. i discussed this issue today with the president and am pleased to report that he has sprung into action immediately to help us get those things while we were in the car riding together. i want to thank him for that. this is our sixth conversation since the weekend. it has been a great working relationship to make sure we are doing the jobs that the people elected us to do. i cannot think the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for the people in our state. i was abl
change. back to the october jobs status these reports have become the focal point since president obama took office and an important monthly mile marker for judging the state of obama's presidency beyond anything else. there have never been a focus on jobs numbers in a presidency like this one but let's take a look at where we are and where we've been. the newest jobs report shows the unemployment rate at 7.9%. in february, 2009, the president's first full month in office it was 8.3%. in between it's been a rollercoaster ride ever since. in october, 2009 the unemployment rate reached its high point of 10%. last month its lowest point 7.8%. 17 times the unemployment rate went up. 18 times it went down. 9 times it stayed the same. in terms of actual jobs the president has presided over 28 months of job gains and 17 months of job losses. but there hasn't been a month that saw a net job loss in more than two years. the best month in terms of job gains was may of 2010 when 516,000 jobs were added. the worst month in terms of job losses was march of 2009 when nearly 800,000 jobs were lost. so
would do a better job leading the country's economy. at his first step in wisconsin, president obama appealed for another term in office to finish the job he started. a short time ago, he was given the backing of new york's mayor michael bloomberg, who endorsed the president's citing specifically the issue of climate change. i ask the political reporter for the "washington post" what he would be watching out for. we're entering the portion of the campaign where i start to the people who run for president just have a different team than the rest of us -- different gene than the rest of us. >> there is no doubt about that, but this is an incredibly close election at this point. a lot of people predicted this a year ago, that it would be close, and they've got the election they anticipated. a handful of states will decide if the candid -- will decide it. candidates will be in and out of the state's multiple times. >> what can they actually do at this stage? barack obama, mitt romney, to try to persuade people after two years of campaigning and, whenever it is, a couple of billion dollar
a listen to this. >> under president obama gm cut 15,000 american jobs, but they're planning to double the number of cars built in china, which means 15,000 more jobs for china. now comes word that chrysler plants will start making jeeps in, you guessed it, china. >> dana, i'm completely confused here. romney is now saying the bailout cost gm jobs, but he's also said obama did exactly what romney had prescribed. help me. >> well, let me see if i can here. what happened is romney put together this -- first of all, he started at a campaign rally misquoting what chrysler was, in fact, doing. they're not moving jobs to china. they're increasing some work in china to get around the tariffs over there. they've added 7,000 jobs in north america. the fact checkers went after him for that, so he put out an ad essentially saying the same thing on television. the fact checkers went after him for that and he put out a new ad on the radio making a worse and more false allegation. some time ago the pollsters said we're not going to let the fact checkers dictate our campaign and nobody can argue with
new jobs during this barack obama president's see, under 8% unemployment rate -- during this barack obama presidency. 32 months of the private sector job growth. you compare that to where we were when bush left office and the president took office. that is a remarkable improvement. that is the pathway to recovery, and president obama has beenthis is no time to change course and go back to -- we don't know what we will be getting with governor romney. he was governor of massachusetts. rounding achievement was mandatory health care for everyone -- his crowning achievement. what president's day will we get from former governor romney? -- what presidency will we get? host: we will stop there. statements. now we will turn it over to viewers, and if you can keep your answers a little shorter so leesburg, virginia, loudoun county courthouse. about an hour outside of washington. robert in columbia, south carolina, on the democrats' line here you are first. go ahead. caller: good morning, c-span, america -- good morning, ladiespresident obama has been studying all aspects of the job and now
to the economy. the president seized on the jobs report today. mr. obama told supporters more workers hired in october than any other time in the last eight months. he says america has come too far to turn back now. >> we've come too far to grow faint hearted. now is the time to keep pushing forward. train our workers to create new jobs and rebuild our infrastructure. >> mitt romney took aim at the unemployment report saying it's a sad reminder the economy is in a virtual stand still. >> he said he'd get unemployment down to 5.2%. that is nine million jobs short. those are real americans.. >> despite the report neither campaign expects new figures will do much to chaimpkt race claiming americans views of the economy are fixed by now. california reached 18.2 million registered voters. secretary of state announced 950,000 new voters have signed up since the 2008 presidential election partially because of the new online registration system. number of registered republicans, however, has fallen to just below 30%. >> and a field poll shows support growing for ending california's death penalty. p
.6% and gdp was 3.5%, and 50 straight months of job growth. i am tired of obama claiming that he has inherited such a bad economy from the bush era, blaming everything on the republicans. barney frank was head of the house financial committee, and chris dodd was the head of the senate banking committee. they have a little friend in a with fannie mae and freddie mac, and that was obama. bush went to congress and ask them 27 times to stop them from making these loans, here because they were too financially risky for america. guest: i think he is right on one thing. the fannie mae and freddie mac meltdown was certainly caused by the house in bubble. that has done a great disservice -- was done a great disservice by congress in encouraging lending to those individuals who did not have sufficient downpayment or did not have the wherewithal to guarantee they would be able to pay back their mortgage loans. that certainly created a house in bubble. -- housing bubble. that did start at the end of the bush administration. we are now four years past the start of the obama administration, and i think we h
and government more of your life is working for us. then you will want to vote for barak obama and higher taxes gives government money that could have funded your job, romney is more likely to be your choice. this much i do know. i sense something very strong moving over this country. on august 1st people waited for line to buy a chicken sandwich. i believe those people are going to be willing to wait in line for hours to cast a vote so america will feel their votes. this is not just an election about our pay checks. this is it an election of our principlings. i believe that everyone's life has value and i don't accept the notion someone is dedisposable or expendible. i believe this election ought to be l about america's place in the world. i am not satisfied we are begin straight and honest answers of the murder of our ambassador and thry other american necessary benghazi. the lack of trance parency and the everchanging store stores from the administration are troubling. it is one thing for a politician to embellish or stretch the truth but for the government to knowingly and willingly deceive
